CELEBRATING REPRODUCTIVE ENDOCRINOLOGY, INFERTLITY AND NATIONAL INFERTILITY AWARENESS WEEK
2016 was an interesting year in almost every sphere, from politics to medicine, and everything in between.
Always leading the charge of technology and thought, the field of Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility (REI) has once again been in the forefront of much news and National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW), April 23 – 29, is a good time to look at this more closely.
Ever advancing methods in embryo selection to assist in single embryo transfer (SET) as well as continual progress in the area of Preimplantation Genetic Diagnosis (PGD) and the freedom and relief it provides for families looking to assure the good health of a future child. More information on conception for those of advanced maternal age as well as ways of optimizing third party reproduction, noting the role of epigenetics that link mother and baby regardless of the genetic connection.
These advances move forward on a daily basis, making REI one of the most exciting fields of science and medicine. This week, National Infertility Awareness Week, we invite you to Listen Up! and celebrate with us as well as plan for the future.
